Got a number of broken lips or bibs on my Rapala floaters # 11's and # 13's. You would think Rapala would have some kind of contact or way to buy some replacements but I'm not seeing any . Any ideas or suggestions would be welcomed !

If you have receipts you can send the lures back and they replace them free of charge. Just need to remove the hooks. I'll see if I can find the email I have from them for the repairs.

If they don't replace, you can make your own replacements with lexan. Work great for homemade plug lips.

On my f 18s I have done like Porktown. Do not keep track of time. I fastened with J B Weld, although I am sure any Epoxy would work. In my world J B Weld is my go to repair cement. I buy the large tubes and it lasts me for years.

Here is a great site for tackle crafting.  They might have some how to articles on repairs.  http://www.tackleundergro...y/forum/13-hard-baits/
I use clear 5 ton epoxy, drill a small hole or two in the lexan portion that goes into the lure, to give a place for your adhesive to anchor.  
I think the tackle underground site sells replacement lips too.
